    4 months later, I finally have the truck painted. I got the subs in too. They sound really good for 10's in such little air space. Not bad for $99 each. I now have to start putting the interior all back together which might take a while with my schedule but I'll keep this site up to date with pics as I go.

    That's a badass truck you got there...glad you got some paint on it. Bet it makes you feel better..lol

    That's a huge dish on those wheels...makes the tires seem too small...hah- though I bet it looks much better in person.

    Props, Nate

    A/C Controls

    I'm a complete newbie so I'm not sure what "bump" meant, but wondered if you all finished the a/c control discussion.

    I think your truck looks awesome. My fiancee has a 2004 stripped down Silverado and I wanted to put a carputer in it to give her everything I've got standard in my car, such as GPS, Bluetooth, etc., so I want to do about exactly what you've done. I'm going to have a lot of questions, and, since our cars are almost identical, can I ask you as I'm working through my project?

    My first question relates to your answer about the a/c controls. I noticed a guy is selling an "articon (sp?)" card or something like that which will attach to the computer's serial port. It is supposed to control the a/c in the car. It comes with a thermometer to monitor inside temperature. Like I said, my fiancee has a stripped down version, so it would be really nice to add "auto" a/c to the computer as well. I'm wondering why you decided just to move the a/c units instead. Did you look into this "articon?" Is it crap?

    My second question is also regarding the a/c controls. Someone stated they noticed you had removed them as well. I'm just making sure that is what you did. Does the 8" screen take-up the entire location where the stereo and a/c controls used to be? Hopefully our trucks are similar and you removed both. I think yours looks a lot more fabulous without the a/c controls. I was going to put in a different sized screen and leave the a/c controls until I saw your post, but I wanted to make sure that's what you did.

    Third, I noticed you said it was time to get back to the interior. I was wondering if you were done putting the screen in there with fiberglass and all. I'm curious as to how hard that is. I've made tons of computers in my past, but anything that takes decent hands, like fiberglass modding/molding, well, I'm pretty sure I'm going to be crap at. If you're done, how hard was it, honestly?

    Lastly, and this is gouche, so you don't have to answer if you don't want, but how much did the body kit upgrade cost, meaning all the way from purchasing the kit and any required tools to paying someone to help (i.e., due to my lack of ability, I would screw it up and end up hiring someone to finish)?

    I think that's enough questions for now. Sorry to bother you, but thanks for inspiring me to get this project moving.

    .

    I agree, I saw the truck (like everyone else) and thought "oh man". After the paint and front end I fell in love with it.

    This is just me, but I think the truck would almost look better at its original hight and with normal sized tires, but with some nice rims. Now I realize that you've spent thousands lifting and getting bigger tires. But cadallac to me, is classy and sleek while the lift and large tires is more rugged and tough.

    Although there is just something about your truck that I like.

    Yes, it was... for the G35 that is. I think some Acura's had Bluetooth in some 2004 models, but I'm not positive. I don't have Bluetooth in my G (b/c it's 2004, probably should have waited), but I plan on putting all that (GPS, Bluetooth, XM, etc.) in my fiancee's truck. I'm thinking of upgrading to a GS430 anyway, but you always need a truck.
